Coming Out as a Novelist

I've been lurking around SheWrites for a long time ... almost since its inception, I think? I've never been quite sure how to best use this community, though I have routinely found others' posts about writing, editing, publishing, and all of the craziness of the process helpful. 

Now, I'm at the beginning of a year-long sabbatical from teaching (religion and gender & women's studies, Illinois College) for  which a major goal is moving my next book toward publication. It's not my…

Literary Mentors: Who are Yours?

I’ve been thinking about literary mentorship. I have just gotten back from the incredible Room of Her Own Foundation's week long writing retreat held at Ghost Ranch in New Mexico.

A Room of Her Own's mission is: To inspire, fund, and champion works of art and literature by women.

Over 100 women:…

She Writes the Sisters - Meg Waite Clayton

I've been eagerly anticipating the release of Meg Waite Clayton’s The Race for Paris, a novel in the same WWII genre of historical fiction as my novel Even in Darkness. While waiting, and in celebration of Meg's many contributions as a literary citizen, particularly to other writers, I recently indulged in the pleasure of re-reading The Wednesday Sisters, Meg's earlier novel about five women who formed a writer's group and then became best…

A Stranger Broke My Heart Today

I have many followers on Facebook; many I don’t know personally. Many who have followed me simply because I followed them. But I do try to connect with as many as I can. I read their posts and comment on what touches me. Today, one such post reached in and gripped my heart.

I read about a woman whose life has been diminished because of health issues. She is no longer able to lead the life she once had and is now mostly in a wheelchair. Because of this, she…

What I Learned after Four Years of Surrounding Myself with Girl Hate

No one wants to believe that a life can be ruined by a few tweets.



I try to tell them, but they won’t believe me. They won’t believe that 120 characters could do real harm. They are so wrong. Girl hate is real and powerful and I’ve lived in it.



I spent my entire college career living in an all-female dorm as a Resident Assistant. Each year, I saw young women being victimized and victimizing other women. Sometimes, all it took was a single tweet and a resident would pack up… Continue

Getting Permission

The manuscript is done—it just needs copy editing and proofing, and then it will be a book. But it seems there is one more major hurdle I hadn’t counted on.

After spending the last five years writing this book, everything now hangs upon getting permission to quote from the letters of the figures I’m writing about. Chief among them are, of course, Constance Fenimore Woolson and Henry James. And it seems there are living descendants whose permission I need.

All along I had been…

Gone are the days when women only stay at home, take care of the housework, do the cooking, laundry, raise and teach their children. Gone are the days wherein the main purpose of a woman is become a helpmate to her husband. Times have changed and so as the role and impact of women in the…

On Death and Driving Lessons

I was two weeks shy of my 27th birthday when I moved back to my parents’ Toronto home after living away for nearly a decade.

Returning home was as hard a choice as it was an easy one. Hard because the idea of coming full circle felt like a failure to me; easy because I needed somewhere familiar to crash (and a warm bed and good food didn’t hurt, either).

What exacerbated matters, though, was my lack of a driver’s license. While I traveled via subway and cabs in New York City…
